Financial District, NY – The Fidi food hall wars began in earnest this year with the debut of Le District, an Eataly-style market for French cuisine at Brookfield Marketplace. (Eataly is set to open at nearby 4 WTC). Le District is already as successful as you might imagine, with its sensory overload of fresh pastries, crepes, cheeses, charcuterie, fish, specialty meats, wines, cocktails, groceries, flowers and prepared foods. Not to be outdone, they also feature a full-service brasserie and fine-dining restaurant. With multi-vendor offerings like Hudson Market, City Kitchen and Smorgasberg all being welcomed to rave reviews – and the highly-anticipated Bourdain Market capturing the attention of foodies everywhere – expect this trend to continue.
